MD59 12th-19th century The Middelton of Stockeld Collection Family and estate papers of the Middeltons of Stockeld Park (Wetherby) and Stubham (or Myddelton) Lodge (Ilkley)

Including deeds for estates in the East, North and West Ridings of Yorkshire, notably Askwith, Austby, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Draughton, Follifoot, Habton, Ilkley, Maunby, Middleton [Ilkley], Nesfield, North Duffield, Ribston, Spofforth, Stockeld, Stubham, Thrintoft, Wakefield, Wheatley [Ilkley] and many other places, and in Cumberland, Durham, Lancashire, Northumberland, Westmorland and Scotland. Manorial court rolls and other papers survive for 17 manors in Wharfedale and elsewhere. There is also material relating to St Leonard's Hospital, York, and a large number of surveys and rentals.

The family were well-connected socially, having alliances with the Plumptons, Vavasours, Calverleys, Eltofts, Towneleys, Ingilbys of Ripley, Constables, Stricklands and Haggerstons, among others. As Catholics and Royalists they suffered for their recusancy in the 16th and 17th centuries, and the papers reflect the difficulties which arose from the sequestration of their estates, and subsequent long-term debts. The collection contains a relatively small proportion of personal material, but there is interesting correspondence from the late 16th and early 17th centuries, and a number of personal and household accounts, particularly for clothing supplied by the best makers in the earlier 17th century. Many accounts and receipts relate to the funeral of Mrs. Mary Middelton, 1644. Cultural references are few, with the exception of a library list compiled in 1718, which notes 342 books in the library at Stockeld.

The collection contains only a few maps and plans, although the surveyor Salomon Swale carried out work for the Middeltons in the early 17th century. A plan of an unidentified house of similar date also survives. The bulk of the collection dates from the period before 1763, when the male line of the Middeltons came to an end.
Material from the collection has been published in: YRS 65, 69, 76 and 120 (Yorkshire Deeds IV, V, VI and X), YRS 161 (forthcoming), YAJ 72 (2000) and 75 (2003). See also R.Collyer and J.
